I really enjoyed this one. The story has many funny lines and I found myself laughing out loud on several occasions. At times the story does seem to go in circles, but I found it very entertaining.

An older lady takes a house in a suburban city for vacation and finds herself in the middle of a mystery. A large sum of money has been stolen from a local bank, the cashier stands accused but has disappeared. This would keep the police busy enough, but they also are chasing a criminal mind known as 'The Bat' who somehow has learned about this money and means to have it for himself. Can the police uncover the mystery surrounding the missing money? Or will the Bat succeed yet again?
Good plot for the most part, if a bit predictable and similar to the author's other books. It did keep me listening tho. Sound is kind of rough, tinny feedback that I had to work at removing using graphic equalizer.
